29 May 10 - Two huge volcanoes erupted  in Central and South America on Friday, forcing thousands of people to flee and disrupting air traffic as the ash drifted over major cities.

Guatemala's Pacaya volcano - about 15 miles south of Guatemala City - started erupting lava and rocks Thursday afternoon, blanketing the country's capital with ash, while ash from Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano soared 6 miles (10 km) into the sky and drifting over the country's most populous city, Guayaquil.

In Guatemala City, where the ash measured three inches (7.5 cm) thick in some areas, bulldozers scraped blackened streets while residents used shovels to clean cars and roofs.
